This has been the most bittersweet week of my entire life!The awesome news:
My wife, Leeann, was notified the other day that she was accepted into Creighton University School of Dentistry for the incoming class of 2008! We are still waiting to hear back from 15 schools but we are so relieved that she will be starting next year! This has been such and incredible journey for us both, and finally she is getting the opportunity to show what she can do. It is incredible to think that after all of her hard work and perseverance over the past several years, that in less than five years she may very well be Dr. Leeann Welch, DDS.The horrible news:
Now I have to go and tell the brewery that I will only be able to stay for 7 months, and see if they still want to go with me or take someone else. On one hand, I don't want to miss out on this opportunity but on the other hand, I can't in good conscience take a job there knowing that I am going to be moving in 7 months. They are great people and I really appreciate the opportunity that they have offered me and I just can't screw them over like that. My only hope is that they take pity on me and realize how much this job means to me, and let me have it anyways. I will understand if they don't but I will be crushed
I guess I will just have to pray about it and hope for the best. At least I will be able to sleep at night knowing that I did the right thing.
